Or am I being obsessive?
Thanks again for your time!!!

Aprylle wrote:I'm doing this for health and longevity and, you are correct, other reasons. After going through a two year divorce (and a few other things) I had gotten below a healthy weight for me from emotional stress. Friends expressed concern... So I decided to fight back. With diet and exercise. So I'm taking it out on the track, and looking for maximum nutrition for the calories. So I eat fruits and veggies now instead of nothing
Oh, so I guess I shouldn't worry about the fat in the soy milk...?
